I found this on the OPAL list of events today (which hasn’t had much of interest to me lately) and wanted to make sure you didn’t all miss it!!
Wednesday, June 6, 2007 beginning at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time,
1:00 Central, noon Mountain, 11:00 a.m. Pacific, and 6:00 p.m. GMT:
David Weinberger will be discussing his new book, Everything is Miscellaneous, in which he explores how the new principles of disorder are remaking society, culture, education, business, media, politics, and–perhaps most importantly–libraries. This is the book that Karen Schneider described in the as “…dangerous. [It] takes all the precious ideas we are taught as librarians and throws them out the window.” The dedication of the book, by the way, is “To the librarians.” Weinberger, one of the co-authors of The Cluetrain Manifesto, is a fellow at Harvard Law School’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society and holds a doctorate in philosophy.
